Good Decision Bad Outcome

Sometimes you make the right decision, sometimes you make the decision right.
Phil McGraw

Just because there was a good outcome does not mean you made a good decision.

Don’t evaluate decisions based on the outcomes, evaluate the process you used to make the decision.

When the focus is on the process it forces you to think in a more holistic way.

Part of a good decision-making process is listing the pros and cons of a decision. But pros and cons are going to be affected by what you value.

Part of a good decision-making process is creating a decision tree for what the different outcomes might be. Evaluating the different outcomes requires you to know where you want to go.

Part of a good decision-making process is understanding the current state and the desired future state. Understanding your current state requires internal reflection, and really understanding the situation as it is.

A decision-making process is a natural way of understanding who you are and where you want to go.
